Cabinet Refacing Supplies: RTF is the Ultimate Veneer Solution

By Karin Mangan

Having a nice set of brand new cherry cabinets in your kitchen is an obvious draw but most of us can't afford it. Even wood veneers can get expensive when compared to the alternatives. Fortunately, the alternatives continue to get better.

Perhaps the best type to buy when ordering your cabinet refacing supplies is rigid thermo foil (RTF). Here are 5 reasons why more and more homeowners are choosing RTF for their kitchen cabinet refacing projects.

1. It's Tough

RTF is a tough laminate that can take a real beating and not chip easily. For those of us with active families, this is great news, which makes it an obvious refacing choice. It is also easy to clean and maintain.

2. It Looks Real

RTF does a great job of replicating wood. It can be manufactured with a variety of wood grains to look like different species, and it's hard to spot the difference.

3. It Is Easy to Work With

Because of the malleability of RTF, it can be used for different design shapes that aren't possible with other materials. This gives you many options, particularly if you want to go the custom route.

4. There Are Many Options

More than any other laminate available, RTF can be designed to look like many different materials. Plastic currently has more options, but they don't do as good of a job as RTF. With the high demand for and low cost of producing RTF, the options available can only grow.

5. It's Cheap

You can't beat the price of RTF, which is even cheaper than plastic laminate. With RTF, you can do a refacing job for less than a thousand dollars if you're trying to stretch your budget.

To many, there's just no contest - when it comes to cabinet refacing supplies, RTF is a no-brainer. Unless you're married to the idea and the cost of using real wood veneer, we're sure you agree.
